What is it like to lose your mind? How do you get it back?
Dizraeli’s electrifying new album, The Unmaster, speaks of madness and collapse, struggle and redemption with searing honesty, surreal humour and a soundtrack unlike anything you’ve heard. A dark, fierce hybrid of hiphop, grime & West African percussion, it is music to make sense of an insane world.
Poet, producer, MC and multi-instrumentalist, Dizraeli is in a genre all of his own. In the past few years, he has led the ground-breaking band Dizraeli & The Small Gods to underground success, has supported Saul Williams and Mos Def on their UK tours, worked with Kate Tempest and Scroobius Pip and had his music played across multiple radio stations. Now, after 3 years of studying percussion in Senegal, immersing himself in the world of London grime and bass music, working with refugees in Calais and finally, living through a mental breakdown, he’s back.
The explosive live band features musical direction from Kwake Bass (Sampha, Kate Tempest), keys and samples from Raffy Bushman, visuals from The Light Surgeons (The Orb) and Dizraeli on vocals and multiple percussion instruments. Come and see Dizraeli’s legendary live performance at this year’s World Ceilidh!
